Join professional photographer Paul David Smith and a female model for a day of swords, armour, knights and chainmail.
Taking in some of Cornwall’s finest locations, we add in our talented female model and go full Game Of Thrones on the costumes to create some awe inspiring photographs you won’t be able to capture elsewhere. We’ve spent far too much money on the most amazing chainmail and armour outfits and even made an epic dress out of a parachute!
During this full day workshop we’ll capture some stunning images you simply wouldn’t be able to capture elsewhere all whilst developing your photography skills and improving your abilities working with models and photographing people.
Paul has spent years of his life photographing creative concepts and will share this knowledge with you covering multiple subjects including:
– The Best Camera Settings To Use In Any Given Situation & Why
– Composition Techniques
– Location Hunting/Chasing The Light
– Off Camera Lighting Using Flash & HSS
– Storytelling & Building Creative Concepts
– Photoshop / Lightroom & Post Processing
No specific skills are required to attend this course and the only equipment you will need to bring with you is your camera and lenses.
Up to 2 people can attend this course at no additional cost. Group bookings of more than 2 people can be arranged, please get in touch.
This workshop will start at 9am and will run until fonished, this is usually around 5pm.
This is a full day course and will last around 8 hours.
This course will take place in Newquay, Cornwall, UK unless agreed otherwise prior to booking.
I get a lot of requests for help with camera equipment recommendations, almost daily in fact and offer a Personalised Photography Equipment Recommendation service which you can find by clicking here.
Recommending a camera and the best lenses to buy really has lots of different factors involved in it which need to be investigated first such as what the equipment will be most used for, budgets, your expectations on image quality, your current level and aspirations, etc. Hence the above service so we can really drill down into finding you the best equipment.
Alternatively, some people attend my courses and borrow a camera from me for the day to do so, we can then incorporate this recommendation as part of the course at no extra cost. The benefit of doing it this way is that I have a lot of cameras and lenses you can try and see the difference between prior to purchasing anything. The downside is your not learning on your own equipment of course, so there are pluses and minuses to doing it both ways, it depends on what you think works best for you.
Paul is DBS checked and is happy to share a copy of his DBS certificate with any client, no matter whether they are a business, charity, organisation or individual.
